With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Historic House of Linnwood.




Linnwood Hall, constructed in 1891, is located in Holroyd, NSW, south of Guildford. The residence sits high on a north-south running ridge within spacious grounds of about 5 hectares (12.5 acres). Since 1917, the site was continually adapted and developed specifically for various welfare uses such as housing and educating state wards.
  We visited here with Lori and Les. There was also a car display put on with the Rolls Royce Owners Club of Australia.



Videos have to be watched on this page.
